MSMA's 164th House of Delegates
The 164th Session of the MSMA House of Delegates will meet 7:30-8:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 2. On Sunday, April 3, the House will convene at 8:15 a.m. to hear reports from the Reference Committees and install officers.
Important Changes for Delegate Apportionment
The MSMA House of Delegates adopted a bylaw change in April 2021 that modifies the delegate apportionment process. Beginning in 2022, delegates will be apportioned by district instead of their local medical societies. This is due to the dormancy of a number of local societies, and the increasing number of MSMA direct members, who have no representation in the current House of Delegates. In addition, districts will receive one delegate for every ten MSMA members who reside or practice in that district. These changes are intended to ensure the future viability of the House of Delegates.
Resolutions - Deadline for Submission: February 16, 5:00 pm
Resolutions submitted after February 16 are considered late resolutions. The individual or society introducing a late resolution must supply sufficient copies, printed in standardized format, for the entire House of Delegates at its opening session (plus 10 copies delivered to the MSMA Secretary at the time of its introduction). Late resolutions will be accepted as business of the House at the Opening Session, but will be referred to a Reference Committee only if approved by two-thirds of the Delegates voting. All members of MSMA are privileged and urged to attend the sessions of the House of Delegates and meetings of the Reference Committees. While discussion in the House is limited to Delegates, any Association member may present his or her viewpoint during meetings of Reference Committees when recognized by the Chair.
